E3 2013 Part 3: A Whole Lot of Nothing

Last time, in Irate Gamer’s E3 coverage.
TOO MUCH SKYLANDERS!
Chris tries his hand at simple gameplay footage and even fails that.
He inexplicably talks about a first-person shooter.
He might actually be a fan of Diablo, but I still question it.
Chris gushes over another Kinect game, even though it would be impossible to play it considering the size of his room.

And now, the continuation.

Exclusive to YouTube

I don’t get why Chris is suddenly so excited for Assassin’s Creed. He’s never talked about it on the show, and his interview about ACIII last year felt like an assignment from Steve. Now he’s all “It was the second most amazing thing behind Batman!” Maybe he thinks Edward is like Batman?

*reads description* “Checking out the 4th installment!” Actually, not counting the DS/PSP/Vita games, this it the sixth Assassin’s Creed game. Brotherhood and Revelations are kind of like “2.5” and “2.75”.But I doubt he knows much about the series since this is the first title he’s shown any interest in.

Most of his questions are off of info he saw at last year’s E3 on ACIII. GotGame, if one of your journalists knows nothing about a series, don’t fucking send him to ask questions about it.

“I bet you guys did a lot of research” He mentioned this last year too… did he just copy the same questions and bullet points he had? Maybe it’s a satire on the gaming industry? How games like Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty release annual installments with very few changes made to the overall experience? No… that’s far too smart for Bores. He was just lazy.

“I’m kind of a history buff myself” HAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh wait, you were serious.

“I can’t wait to play this game” Every time he says that about an M-rated title, there’s only a 10% chance he’s actually going to play it.

I figured he would talk about this. He fucking loves Skylanders, so it wouldn’t surprise me he would look at Disney’s own version of it.

I swear, Bores never pays attention to what the reps are saying. She gets done explaining something, and he asks something that was just explained to him.
Ugh… we’re going into July people.

Video #22: Skylanders Swap Force - Iron Jaw Gulch Level - Gameplay e3 2013 (No Audio)
July 3rd 2013
Exclusive to YouTube.

If you’re wondering about the dates, he didn’t upload anything new on the 1st or 2nd. Just reuploads of the Lego Marvel Super Heroes and Diablo III videos to YouTube, both of which I covered last time.

Anyway, it’s another gameplay video. No audio again. In the description, he says we wouldn’t be able to hear it due to the all the noise. That’s no excuse for not putting music over it. Let me search Skylanders Giants OST … oh look, there’s music on YouTube. Quit being a lazy moron.
Even the fans didn’t like it, by the time I found the video it had more dislikes than likes.

The video runs at 13 minutes 41 seconds, waaaay longer than the Mario videos.
I’m not going to watch this… no reason to.

Second verse, same as the first. What can I really say?

It’s past July 5th now, and he hasn’t posted anything else. I’d say he’s winding down, but I honestly have no idea. We’ll know when he posts those Top 5 lists.

Will GotGame ever learn their lesson and realize bringing him to E3 is always a bad idea?

  1. God, He hasn't even gone into the other Skylanders clone from DC, Infinite Crisis. He'll probably gush. Although, from what I saw of it, it looks to be one of the better clones. There's still the pokemon one too. Oh man, Actvision will get creamed when that one comes out.

    1. Infinite Crisis is a MOBA like LoL and DOTA2. Nothing to do with Skylanders. But yes, it actually looks surprisingly decent. Then again, the Turbine guys did a good job with D&D Online or so I've been told.

  2. This whole Skylanders obsession is seriously dragging down his subscriber count. I'm personally surprised that he covered competitor Disney Infinity; I expected him to gloss it over. I'm even more surprised he liked it; though I'm personally on board with Infinity since John Lasseter is overseeing development to make sure the game is good. I also saw Monsters University the other day and really enjoyed it. So, this year has just been the standard incompetence from Boring Man. Nothing monumentally stupid like repeatedly insisting "Nintendo is kiddy" or threatening major companies with violence. However, we still have his best and worst lists; so maybe there'll be something there. I notice that we all have more to talk about when Chris is spectacularly bad than just dull.

    1. Honestly, that's the main reason why I kind of miss the story segments in his reviews.

  3. It looks like Bores/Buggin got into another argument with someone on of his Swap Force videos. It ended with:

    "Yeah I can tell your not American, everything goes right over your head ~"

    I know I'm wasting time post shit he says, but what he says right here is a little fucked up. And I just love how he resorts to petty insults when he's arguing with someone.

    1. Apparently he doesn't care people if know it's him... I guess having a good reputation isn't on his to-do list.

  4. Irate gamer sure likes Skylanders.

  5. Chris thinks he is a "history buff"?

    1. That's coming from the same guy who thinks Nazis had WWI fighter planes.

    2. And that the SNES was released before the Genesis.

    3. Of course this is while wearing an outfit that is stereotypical of pilots from WWI in the clip.

      Yet instead of saying he's trying to shoot down the Red Baron he goes with the generic bad guys that are Nazis!

  6. Joe has been inactive lately.
    Also sortve a continue of my last post from the previous article but has anyone listened to Reel Big Fish?

  7. Please Bores, if people are giving dislikes to your Skylanders videos, JUST STOP POSTING THEM.

    Seriously, your fans don't care about your Skylanders videos Bores and yet you keep hammering them.

  8. I've reviewed both Skylanders games so far on my blog (and will do the same for Swap Force) and I try to further my collection when certain opportunities come up (including a carry case for my Giants-related figures), and even I think Bores' Skylanders output is insane.

    1. I think Bores is more obssesed with Skylanders than I am with Kamen Rider.

    Here's my blog about a Connor Kenway (From the AC series) Fanboy. I'm sorry if it sucks.

    1. Not that it's bad, but I don't see the point in make a blog dedicated to pointing out the stupidity of just another generic troll. The dude only has one subscriber and he dosen't even have any videos.

      Delete
    2. I see your point, but I'm an AC fan and used to watch videos on it all the time. But when the guy just flat out said I can't have an opinion on something, he kept going on to other videos on AC and just kept on trolling people who had a negative opinion on Connor. Someone even pointed out they were opinions to him and the guy I think just mocked him. It just pissed me off so much I just wanted to speak my mind about him. Besides, that was pretty much all I had to say on the guy. He most likely won't even find the blog, anyway.

  10. Isn't Bores doing Skylanders is a good thing? I mean, he's not trashing good games or stealing anyone's thunder right? Is he advocating trolling of his enemies while gushing over Skylanders?

    1. Well the stealing thunder part might still be going on the videos without audio just seem suspicious to me. Even if there was a lot of noise there would be no reason not to have the sound unless you are hiding something that is.

      Delete
    2. These days, Bores couldn't steal thunder if he managed to snag Mjölnir. Never have I seen a subscriber account for a youtube partner so frozen in time.

  11. A gentleman by the name of Ryan Davis pasted away recently. I'm more of a casual gamer than the rest of you so I don't recognize the name. Just thought I'd bring it to your attention.

    1. I know exactly who he is. I'm still mourning...

      He was a great man. A really funny guy that helped bring GiantBomb to the level it's at.

      He was young too, only 34. And he just got married. Really tragic.

  12. Let's see what Chris has updated... Hey it's a new video... Oh wait, he just upload his Injustice review to Youtube. Geez, I wonder why it took him so long for that.

  13. You know it just kind of hit me be in some cases games have gone backwards. I recently started playing Dark Cloud (pretty good game by the way) for the camera you don't use the shoulder buttons to control it, quick time events are in it but they are short, give an actual reward for doing well, and most of all actually warns you that it is starting, and in the intro it did show that the Ps2 could handle at least small crowds. It was released in 2000 for those wondering.

    This world is just unfair. I'm such a loser for creating it and quit doing it.

    1. Trust me flamemario you do not want to think about yourself like that I did and well quite frankly I still think I have no worth.

    2. While I think you did a good job, I find that its only worth writing about people who do harm to more people and on a more public scale. That said, I don't see how ending a blog you were doing for fun and as a hobby makes you a loser.

    3. You should do a blog on that retarded anti-mlp blog instead.

    4. I have one question, do you think that I'm giving criticism to her?
